Churchill Woods Dam Modification & Wetland Restoration

Lombard, Illinois

DuPage County, the Forest Preserve District and the DuPage River Salt Creek workgroup developed concept plans for the removal of the Churchill Woods dam and the restoration of the upstream riparian corridor of the East Branch of the DuPage River. Project goals were to improve fish passage and species diversity upstream of the existing dam, along with increasing dissolved oxygen within the stream. V3’s project scope included determining the new concept plan, preparing engineering plans, developing a wetland restoration plan and obtaining all permits.
